The Way of the Dodo: Rhetoric of Extinction
A research guide based upon the course description for PWR1 GVG: The Way of the Dodo: Rhetoric of Extinction. This research guide broadly covers the research process from researching refernce materials for broad subject reading to database searching for articles.
Reference materials can be good resources for subject overviews and a means to collect useful keywords. The bibliographies frequently include key texts and thinkers that are associated with a specific subject. To discover more reference materials held in the Stanford Libraries, search Reference Universe, Searchworks, consult with a librarian, or browse the libraries' reference collections.
Tips for using reference sources:
1. Look at the cross-references that many entries provide. These can be helpful in pointing you toward a related or more accurate idea/term.
2. One of the most important elements of any good reference source entry is its bibliography. Take note of the books or articles that the entry's author deems elementary to understanding the individual or idea.
